TODDLERS from a Rednal playgroup have been taking part in special birthday celebrations for one of their volunteers.

Youngsters from the Plus 2 playgroup based at St Stephen's Church, in Rednal, celebrated volunteer Robert Walker's recent 21st birthday.

Various activities were organised to celebrate the birthday including balloon modelling, singing, and pass the parcel.

At the party everyone enjoyed a special buffet, while Robert was presented with a 21st birthday cake.

Julie Kite-Lightfoot, the playgroup's manager, said: "Rob has volunteered at the group for many years. He has a lovely caring nature and is a very popular member of our team.

"Afterwards, volunteers at the group treated Rob to a meal out at a local restaurant."
